    How to Get Help when the Surgery is Closed

    We provide medical services during our opening hours. Outside of these hours, medical cover is provided by NHS24.

    NHS24 are responsible for urgent medical problems which develop or evolve while we are closed. The nurses and doctors at NHS24 do not have access to your full medical record, and will not be able to arrange ongoing management or referrals.

    If your problem can wait until we re-open, please consider calling us then. This will ensure that you receive the best medical advice and follow up.
